An exciting collection of essays connecting postcolonialism and the Gospel of John, written by a group of international scholars, both established and new, from Hispanic, African, Jewish, Chinese, Korean and African-American backgrounds. It explores important topics such as the appropriation of John in settler communities of the United States and Canada, and the use of John in the colonisation of Africa, Asia, Latin America and New Zealand.The interpreters represent communities of borderland dwellers, women in colonised settings, minority ethnic groups within colonised centres and others. In an era of rapid globalisation, increased travel, rising diasporic communities and neo-colonialism, it is crucial that biblical scholars find ways to address this world with critical skill and sensitivity. This book fills this need.
